Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0785025A1] The granulating machine has a sieve (5) in the shape of a conic section, with a rotor (4) inside the conical sieve. The rotor is mounted on a shaft (11) rotating in a bearing and coupled to a lateral drive (19) placed below the sieve and the rotor. The rotor and its shaft can be displaced axially by means of an adjustment mechanism (20-26) acting on the shaft below the rotor and the sieve. The adjustment can act on the bearings (12). A lateral arm (24) is operated from outside the machine by rotation of a threaded adjusting ring (26).
